2019 Contracts and List Details

Recommended Posts

The club has officially locked in our list:  "The Demons will have 39 primary listed players and six rookies for the upcoming season"  Demon List

The updated player details are:

image.png.efd6ad2f6f24eb99a5d39bae47009db5.png

I've assumed Corey Maynard and Kade Chandler contracts are for one year.  If anyone has any other info or corrections to above please advise.

Its great to see so many of our young guns reach the 50-100 game range.  Bodes well for us as they can only improve with more games under their belt and cohesion from playing together.

Mods, could you please unpin the 2018 thread and replace it with this.  Thanks.

The Roar has produced player list analysis:  Team Profiles

The Average isn't the best measure;  I prefer The Mean Median.  Nonetheless, the Roar tables are a good indicator of each team.

I was a bit surprised to see Collingwood so high in the age profiles. 

The likes of Lewis and Jones are raising our age profile somewhat.

For us to finish 4th in 2018 when on average age we were 9th and average experience we were 12th shows what a mighty effort it was by the club. 

An interesting comment from the article:  "Overall the numbers hint at a few possible conclusions, one being that putting heavy 2019 expectations on the likes of Melbourne, Fremantle and Essendon because of their notable trade period recruits might be a little premature.

Of these three sides, only one – Essendon – is in the top eight for age, and they are eighth. None is in the top eight for experience.

That’s not to say that these lists aren’t capable of achieving great things in 2019, but instead that they are still some distance from hitting their high-water mark in terms of talent maturity".

Nonetheless, the expectations on us will indeed be 'heavy' and we will rise to the occasion!

Edit:  change 'Mean' to 'Median'

Average and mean are the same thing, I assume you meant median.

Yes need to get new deals for Melksham, Salem, Weideman and Neal-Bullen. 3 year deals for each of the blokes imo. 

Lewis Final year in 2019. Let’s get the premiership and send him out in style  

As they only have 1-year deals, Maynard, Garlett, Wagner-J and Jkh all need to show improvement to stay on board.  

Garlett just needs to find his desire once again and he’s best 22.

Are you sure May will be 31 at end of season?

Not sure JJ's age is correct also.

No need to delete - its a good time to clarify the player's age shown is as at the end of their contract.

 

Thanks to all for changes.  I will do them when next I update the table, which probably won't be long since the club would want to sign up a few players soon rather than later.

 Be surprised if Lewis is playing if we do as you say. He was average last year and should be worse with another year under his belt.

The big one for me on that list is Weideman.  While we are not privy to how he is feeling, I think the club has done a terrific job at developing him and getting him back to full fitness after the injuries he suffered as a junior.  Hopefully he sees this and is keen to sign a long term contract with the club, as we are now putting plenty of faith in him with the loss of Hogan.

You would be pretty confident in some of the other main players, like Melksham and Salem, that they will re-sign sometime during 2019, but Weideman is the key one for me.

Nit picking (sorry), but I think Corey Maynard has played 2 games, one in 2017 and one this year.

The AFL website is reporting that we have one rookie spot left that we are likely to fill with a SSP list player (in addition to Wagner).

 

Quote

 

Among the players in the mix could be multiple state league medallists Mick GibbonsMitch Grigg and Jye Bolton, Casey Demon Jay Lockhart, key-position prospect Hayden McLean, who trained at St Kilda, and late-blooming South Fremantle onballer Marlion Pickett.

There is also a chance clubs will keep a spot up their sleeve for next year's mid-season rookie draft, but industry sources say it is unlikely any team would enter the season one player short.

Updated for Melksham signing on till 2022.  Its great that he has signed up again as he has turned into a very valuable player, somewhat unexpected at the time he was recruited.

We still have one list spot and it looks likely that if it is filled will be in the mid season draft.  Gives the club a chance to see how potential target players go in their respective leagues before committing.

I would think the club is working on contract extensions for Salem, Weideman and ANB as we speak.

I would like to see Frost, smith and stretch  added to the contract extensions. Jones will be the most interesting.

Nice post and quite revealing. As for the Filth, it is very sad (for them) that age is creeping up on their experience base and with that, a few years  (the more the better) in the doldrums could possibly be a consideration and outcome for/of this list. The cynic in me thinks this is going to be a test for their injury management and for their list refreshment in order to be competitive.

Hurrah! This is a very prominent in my mind, too. It shows that something very good is happening.

I agree, although they might wait with Frost, there's a lot of competition for the spot he's best at.

I reckon that unless Jones is badly injured during the season then he'll be put on year by year contracts, but I'd say he's got another 2 seasons after this

Bump.

Melksham signed on for another three years, Salem close to another two years.

Here is the update for Salem (assuming the proposed 2 year contract extension eventuates).

image.png.dc28a111e62d9798c51d6bb206db307e.png

Salem has been limited to 70 games injury and form issues so he is yet to reach that sweet spot of 100-150 games.  His best is yet to come - delightful prospect.

Would expect Weideman to sign up again but not in a hurry as he would understandably like to prove himself to improve his contract value.

The other that may take some time is Jones but in his case it may be injury issues which delay a contract.  Understandably he would be looking for several years.

A few others OOC this year maybe on their last chance if they can't break into the senior side for a regular game as we have had some good recruits in the last few years who will put pressure on those guys.

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and
